Here we are yet again! This list continues with another round of movie trilogies to watch while in quarantine or perhaps you have plenty of time on your hands. This list is a mixed bag of assortments ranging from action, comedy and even some adventures. There are good ones to watch when time is on your side and you’re looking to kill time, so why not enjoy the day with these five amazing trilogies. Let us take a look.
Binge-worthy Trilogies – Rocky 1-3
A story of an underdog who is given the chance to fight the best fighter in the ring is one of the most iconic sports sagas even to be produced. With Stallone playing the title role and also contributing to the script, these movies not only provide good sports drama but also excellently choreographed boxing sequences and a love story that is the core of these movies. The love between Rocky and Adrian is the heart of these movies and their story together makes this trilogy all the more exciting. Rocky II proved to be a fantastic sequel while part three with Mr. T is decent but nowhere as awesome as the first two. I could include the fourth entry with the Russian but all in all, the Rocky trilogy inspires, excites and is excellent entertainment all around.
The Terminator Trilogy
The future is uncertain by most standards, but in this case, the world is thrown into apocalyptic war between humans and the machines that they created. While the timeline may be somewhat fishy in practical terms, The Terminator trilogy is filled with awe-inspiring moments. From seeing the Terminator in his skeletal form to the award-winning special effects of T-2 and even the exciting conclusion of Rise of the Machines, which I’m a fan of; there’s nothing short of exciting moments in these movies. Forget everything that came afterwards, this is the trilogy that was a blast from start to finish. But, let’s be honest here, nothing could ever top the achievement that was T-2!
American Pie 1-3
Before Superbad and the numerous other raunchy comedies that followed thereafter, there was American Pie. The franchise has exploded exponentially but from the first two and American Wedding, the movies offer nothing short of endless laughs and memorable moments. From Jim’s encounter with that foreign exchange student, to Jim’s dad and seeing everyone grow up while never forgetting who they are, American Pie is the perfect trilogy for summer laughs and enjoyment. One thing is for certain, we never looked at an apple pie the same ever again.
Captain America Trilogy
Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) became the first avenger and fought for what was right in his eyes. While the first film was a lot of fun, it’s the sequels where the trilogy shines. Following in the path of the Jason Bourne trilogy, these movies got better with each entry. They are a blast to watch, funny and offer plenty of action while tackling themes that relate to real-life issues, these are some of the most impressive entries on offer from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I just wonder how that shield is able to ricochet the ways that it does.
Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy
“The night is darkest just before the dawn and I promise you, the dawn is coming.” This is the batman movies that did the source material right. Throwing away the silliness of the ‘90s films, this is a more realistic setting of the superhero genre of movies. They are more like a gritty crime feel on par with The Departed. Memorable villains, great action moments and an absolute breathtaking soundtrack make this the perfect trilogy in recent years that will stand as being one of the greatest trilogies. Many wear the infamous cape, but nothing beats Christopher Nolan’s astounding take on the man who vows to protect the city of Gotham.
